Staff well trained everything was done in a professional manner food quality needs little bit better

I got delayed, wasn't told about the Iftar time and the entertainment hub wasn't working even I tri3d scanning the QR code multiple times

Better food and better customer service by staff

Meal portion used to be bigger.

Cons: "Horrible food snd mostly chicken or beef choice no seafood of veggie choice"
Cons: "I wish the 777 had slightly wider seats like the A380"
Pros: "Excellent flights in all respects."
Pros: "The crew were attentive and friendly."
Pros: "Since not enough room in "What could have been better". For as long as my second flight was, from Dubai to Boston, the seats in coach were criminal!!! Way to narrow, especially if sitting next to a large person. Not nearly enough distance to seat in front of you, can't even bend over to reach some-"
Cons: "thing on the floor. The seats do NOT recline enough to be able to relax & get shuteye. It would have been really nice to have a footrest of some type, even busses have those! I am a small person, 5'1'' and 110 lb. Consider not having such a huge gap between 1st class and economy. Way over crowded."
Pros: "A perfectly ordinary Emirates flight: good food and entertainment."
Cons: "The Kabul route often has less experienced travelers. So passengers couldn't figure out their seat belts, couldn't lock the toilets, stood up while the plane was still on the runway, pushed and shoved to try to get off the plane first, etc."
Pros: "Hotel stay on your long hold"
Cons: "Needs to improve in all sections"
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew, new movies"
Cons: "Long wait after boarding before takeoff"
Cons: "There was a nosiey family setting behind us they bothered us an the ppl around us the little kid was very hyper and loud un polite and the father him self is very rough when getting up an setting as he would grap the chair very hard and he would move and kick alot we complained to the crew but he didn’t stop and the noise and bothering was there the whole flight, the captain of the flight felt like he isnt a professional as the plain was moving in unstable way on a high speed and uncomfortable degree where we felt unsafe at a point, the flight was Delayed one hour so as the time we took of we reach to dubai an hour late and had just around 50 min to get to the connected flight we had to run and we couldn’t rest or take a look at the airport our waiting time was 1:50 min because of the delay we had to run for the next flight, i think that Emirates airlines should stop dealing with Flydubai crew as they aren’t as professional and they are effecting in a bad way, i have traveled many times with Emirates and this is the first time i dont feel satisfied, next time ill make sure the flight isnt oprated by Flydubai they crew and captain is not in the professional level at all."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Attentive crew. Good entertainment options"
Cons: "The toilet had no toilet paper so I used the paper hand towel and prayed it did not block when I flushed. The beef option was not that great. I should've chosen the chicken."
Pros: "Entertainment and boarding process"
Cons: "Crew could be more friendly"
Cons: "Water leaking into 52 and 53. Wet socks"
Pros: "It was good"

Pros: "We got upgraded to business class--best experience of my life!!!"
Cons: "No one single thing was wrong"
Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "Everything from food to seating was quite comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit more difficult since they did not call boarding zones"
Pros: "I liked the options for entertainment and comfort."
Cons: "Crew and Boarding crew were not at all respectful, they were very rude."
Pros: "Price, comfort, ice, food and drinks"
Cons: "I just don’t like discomfort of others moving their seat back."

Pros: "spacious aisles, friendly stewardesses"
Cons: "4 hour delay and a missed connecting flight because of that delay."
Pros: "Service is excellent and I really enjoyed the musicians while waiting to bord the plane"
Pros: "Crew were lovely very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Ground staff was quite rude refused to let us access the lift so we could board from the upper deck even though we were business class. She insisted that I walk round and board from where she was because she didn't want to walk a few steps and swipe her card for us to access the lift."
Pros: "ICE entertainment system was of high quality."
Cons: "First, the seats were very small and uncomfortable. I had trouble sleeping, and, the seat was stuck (couldn't move back). And second, the food tasted horrendous. I have been on many flights, and this was perhaps the worst meal I've ever had. The coffee was bitter enough to make me gag (even after I added cream), and the chicken was flavorless. The boarding process was a mess. It was hectic and unorganized. The flight was delayed an hour, and the crew failed to provide an adequate rationale as to why. Speaking of the crew, they weren't helpful. At one point, I had asked to use the restroom, and I couldn't get in. Again the crew provided no rationale as to why. Then, a few HOURS later, a lady approached me and said I could go "very quickly". This was my first time flying with Emirates and I don't think I'll be flying with them again."
Pros: "Attentive flight crew and spacious interior"
Cons: "Food, food and food"
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "Staff wasn't the friendliest. Waiting times on Dubai airport is way too long, the airport staff was rude, and not helpful at all. Unwilling to speak English. Can learn a lot from KLM. This was my first time flying with Emirates, will be the last."
Cons: "We couldn't take a flight for many reasons my wife she's pregnant and not allow to take a flight ,Your company didn't help us for changing our flight this moment so we lost our flight ,our trip,our money Thank you KAYAK"
Pros: "It's a classy, professional operation with new, comfortable, very well-equipped planes, high-end entertainment options, an international crew, and many small comforts that really add up to a better experience."
Pros: "Emirates still remains one of the leaders in hte business"
Cons: "The crew was unwilling to do their job. I sat in the window seat and the crew member assigned to us wasn't even willing to pass me drinks or food leaving the task to the people sitting next to me or to me overly stretching to get to the tray. She never smiled, talked nor look at us. Not really a kind service I would say. Never had such a odd experience, usually people doing that job have much more attention to these type of details"
Pros: "The seats."
Cons: "Firstly, the attitude of the staff was beyond comprehension. From the get go, they all looked as if they were working at gunpoint. Secondly, the food was inedible. Over salty, bland, and above all, they ran out of food. On an aircraft the size of an A380, one would like to assume that there will be enough food for people who are stuck and afraid of asking for anything from the moody staff. I have been travelling with Emirates for years now and insisted on flying it this time around upon much disapproval from my peers and family. My experience proved them right. I am still in complete shock and dismay. On a 12+ hour journey if I have to witness the staff rolling their eyes and where the passengers have to think twice before asking to be served, I think that's not right. Shame on you Emirates."
Pros: "Streamlined flight compared to Boston to Dubai flight. Still very pleasant staff"
Cons: "Seats not as comfortable as possible in coach"
Pros: "Would have been better if the Veg food was not of the saem menu as in the preceding flight"
Pros: "Choice for entertainment"
Cons: "Have travelled on Emirates several times but the Crew hospitality was poor this time. Oriental food was not good."
Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "wifi wasn't good - I couldn't connect. Wine choice wasn't good (white). Would have preferred a sav blanc"
Cons: "I had given on line preference for Asian vegetarian food but was not served collection of booked luggage at cropusal at SFO ,was difficult for a senior citizen like me as there was commotion"
Pros: "Check-in counter associate was very rude and the wait was too long"
Cons: "The wait and the treatment without any greetings or respect"

Cons: "i did not like the food"

Cons: "seat comfort"
Pros: "Bombardier C Series. Most leg room and comfort of any plane"
Pros: "I loved that every seat had a pillow, blanket and head-phones waiting. The movie selection was great, too.The service was excellent. Love having metal utensils, and not plastic."
Cons: "No fault of the airline, but when passengers recline their seat backs all the way, it's very difficult for the person behind. Two vegetarians meals were offered - which is ok, but I was unsure if either had sufficient protein; plus the side dishes were all starches."
Pros: "The seats were good for a short flight, which this was. No complaints."
Pros: "Crew was nice"

Cons: "Check in was annoying in Paris as we had to go to ticket counter, and then go to a different counter to pay for luggage.

Cons: "Could not check in online because the system was down."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very understanding."
Cons: "I requested a basinet for my infant daughter and I paid a total of $98.93 extra, but on the plane they told me they didn't know anything about that and they didn't have any basinet. I called Swiss as soon as I landed, and I've told my request was sent but it was never confirmed. They also told me they will send me an email when the basinet for the return flight is confirmed. At this point, I'm not even sure what I paid the $98.93 for."
Pros: "Brand new plane and SUPER comfortable (even in coach!)."
Cons: "I missed my connection and got to Hong Kong a day late."
Pros: "Spacious seats"

I tried online and calling the # that was provided no results. I managed to get thru to someone and they told me they would send the info to my email but they never did."
Pros: "Air hostesses were very courteous, friendly and the cabin was clean and comfortable. My flight from jfk to Geneva (then Zurich) was cancelled due to weather in Geneva (Swiss 23) so I got upgraded to a delta flight to Brussels then to Zurich Comfort+ !!! Thank you!"
Cons: "Flight from Zurich to Johannesburg: Swiss 288 (airbus a340-300) Sat in the last row of the Swiss air flight, economy, which was okay but our whole row video enternatinment system didn’t work. You’d pick a movie and it wouldn’t play. The games, camera and flight status animation all worked but not the movies. Air hostess tried resetting , still nothing. But it was a great opportunity to have a lovely conversation with my new German Friend Barbara and read my book! More lactose intolerant alternatives for breakfast which had much (cheese, yogurt, croissant) Other than those two , excellent flight. Thank you Swiss!"

Pros: "The aisle seat I purchased wasn't miserable like so many economy seats are. But I did have to pay for it!"
Cons: "I had such a miserable experience getting to Florence on Swiss Air that I sent a letter of complaint WHILE ON VACATION!! Really. It was a nightmare... not the way you want to start a vacation. I had difficulty booking my daughter's seat online for the return, but didn't have access to phone service while abroad. In my complaint letter to Swiss Air I requested they place us together. I never got a response and upon check in, they had my son and me in our purchased seats and my daughter at the back of the plane. I asked them if they could do anything about it (I was even willing to give up my seats to move to the back...) yet no one seemed concerned or interested in helping to make this work. They also had no knowledge of my complaint or appeared concerned about my prior experience. I'm so over Swiss Air. My experience with the employees on the phone prior to my first departure, the lack of response to my email, and a disinterested and inattentive staff on my return, have all convinced me to choose a different airline next time."
Pros: "The flight crew was super friendly and efficient. Lots of leg room and the croissant is a nice touch!"
Pros: "plane was huge and clean. hour flight, was shocked to have service. Bravo!"
Cons: "gate number on ticket was different from where plane left from. Almost missed my flight."
Cons: "Checking bags took longer than I would have liked."

Pros: "Very professional crew"
Cons: "Not enough food"
Pros: "The ambient being so relaxing felt asleep all the way to Zurich."
Pros: "upgraded to First Class with Voucher. Service was immaculate, very friendly and professional. First Class, at least on this flight was a bit aged, the seat is quite comfortable but you could see that it is actually already old."
Cons: "Entertainment system with old low-res monitors and outdated system. Didn't work for a while and had to be restarted several times. Needs urgent renewal."
Pros: "Food, service, beverages, film selection."
Cons: "N/a"
Cons: "Ice cream snack."
Pros: "El espacio dentro de la cabina y la atención de la tripulación. Me informaron de la inmediatez de mi siguiente conexión"
Cons: "100% of our checked luggage was lost and two days into our one week biking trip in Sweden we have heard NOTHING from Swiss Air. No knowledge of where the four large bags are, no follow up and no help. Basically, we have been left with biking clothing and little hope that our bags will show up before we leave Sweden. Unacceptable and we will NEVER fly this airlines again."

Cons: "The most racist and unfriendly and uncivilized people ever."

Cons: "This trip really excellent Thank you Turkish Airlines"

The bathrooms are very dirty and has nomjand soap to wash your hands . Male staff in board come across unpolite. ingelt inwelcomed by the male flight attendant port side at the back.?"
Pros: "There was almost nobody on the flight. In flight entertainment was awesome too."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Good entertainment system with lots of options."
Cons: "The plane was uncomfortably warm throughout the (long!) flight, which made it difficult to get any rest."
Pros: "The flight was excellent, with good food and good service. The crew was very professional and courteous."
Cons: "Our experience in the Istanbul airport. We got off our connecting flight and no one was willing to provide us with directions. We had to stand in a security line for two hours thinking that we had as a consequence missed our connecting flight. Again, no communication. We found out when we finally got through security (we had already gone through security at the Paris airport), everyone was in the same situation and our flight had been delayed. It would have been helpful to know that as we were standing in line. While in the line, many people panicked and starting pushing their way to the front of the line. Again, no officials were there to keep order. It was truly a mess! And creating too much anxiety and stress that I really wanted to not have on my trip back to the USA. I realize that in these times, we must go through added security, but I am accustomed to US airports where there is more communication over the intercom and by airport officials. In Istanbul, it seemed that everyone did not want to give directions, and airport officials seemed to avoid the public they were there to serve."
Pros: "Professional and friendly staffing, comfortable flight."
Cons: "We realized when boarding to first flight that they did not included my son on next connection flight...oops when it was addressed they fixed it in a professional matter with appologies at boarding."
Cons: "In flight entertainment system was not functioning. Turkish refused to provide hotel in Istanbul as per their policy even after being told by Turkish employees in the USA and France that this would be provided due to my 20 hour layover. I will not fly Turkish again in the future."
Cons: "Enjoyed the hotel stay on the long layover"
Pros: "Will definitely fly Turkish Airlines again!"
Cons: "No being able to rebook!"
Pros: "love the food and the crew service."
Cons: "Aircon could have been better. Someone got sick during the flight because of that."
Cons: "I have lactose intolerance and I tried ordering the special meals. However the lactose free meals are not good. I got it more than once, it's always dry grilled chicken, steamed veggies and plain rice. Overall it's a dry meal and no flavorful at all. On this trip I didn't order a special as I was hoping one of the options wouldn't have lactose."
Pros: "Lots of crew members Pay attention Food was good"
Cons: "The boarding was chaotic"
Pros: "The food and entertainment on the plane"
Cons: "The Turkish Airlines staff can be very rude, non-communicative in passing along information. They do not like you to ask questions nor do they want to answer your questions. They yell at you or just simply ignore you. No legroom. The crew did not mention that are flight was delayed prior or that we missed our connecting flight and what to do from there. I was given a hotel room during my layover but its in a scary neighborhood and it smells like sewage is nearby. The Grand Yavaz. The cheaper price is not worth the hassle. I can spend my good money elsewhere...i will be sure to warn others."
Pros: "I eventually arrived at the destination."
Cons: "Difficult to communicate with cabin crew due to lack of English. Flight was delayed by 1 hour. General atmosphere on plane was chaotic I think due to the small plane and length of flight as large numbers of people needed to use toilets."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "1- bad service 2- bad attitudes 3- Always DELAYS 4- lost the bag"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled so that's it!"
Pros: "The variety of films on show was decent"

Cons: "Screaming children and passengers that don't follow simple instructions or cue with respect"
Pros: "The service was okay."

Cons: "Some of my electronics, clothing, and personal belongings were stolen from my luggage"
Cons: "Terrible connections. Long delays. Truly awful"
Pros: "excellent food, service"
Pros: "The food.."
Cons: "That the anytime snacks that was offered was not available for passengers"

Pros: "The entertainment choice ! Amazing !!"
Cons: "They lost track of my suitcase. I just received it"
Pros: "Checkin and time"
Cons: "Food was meh."
Pros: "It got me to the next airport alive"
Cons: "There was not much to watch on tv and not enough alcohol"
Pros: "Excellent service, excellent food, very friendly crew"
Cons: "no subtitles on English language movies, which means I could not understand half of the dialogues because of the noise and poor sound quality. It would be very nice to always have English subtitles on all English-language movies."
Pros: "A great example of excellent service. The entertainment system really couldn't be beat."
Pros: "i love the movies"
Cons: "The cabin crew was rude and disorganized"
Pros: "Loved the leg room and movie/live TV selection"

Pros: "Had emergency exit row with plenty of leg room"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The friendly atmosphere, and the choice of food and drink."
Cons: "Nothing was wrong"
Pros: "Every thing. The overall service in economy is equal to business class on American carriers, with the obvious exception of the seat itself. A light breakfast meal on a 45 minute flight? Absolutely incredible. I've also experienced this with Lufthansa in the past, but they didn't have seat-back entertainment on short flights."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."
Cons: "Small food/entertainment selection, jarring landing, inattentive baggage handlers."
Cons: "They missed my connecting flight, were terrible at communication"
Cons: "Smelly and disorder"
Pros: "Very good food. Quite an extensive movie selection. Staff was very pleasant."
Cons: "It takes a bit long to complete all processes"
Cons: "The service is slow and flight crew do not go out of their way to connect or provide extra service. In fact they"
Pros: "Comfort of A380 Legs space"
Cons: "Terrible Connecto in Frankfurt We had to run for 15mn to get our Singapore flight with no help from Lufthansa: poor service"
Pros: "Not much went well, sorry"
Cons: "Because of bad logistics, the flight from CDG to FRA was delayed and therefore i missed my connection to AUS. Lufthansa personnel could have helped me make the second flight but didn't bother. I was rebooked on another flight through IAH which defeats the purpose of choosing a direct flight."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and attentive. Seats were very tight and uncomfortable, specially for a 6’3 tall person!"
Cons: "Boarding could be a little bit more organized"
Cons: "Better Communication from Lufthansa"
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Confortable seats"
Pros: "Service is excellent, comfortable seats and space between legs is comfortable even in economy."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "They cancelled my ticket because I missed the second leg of the flight. They didn’t even offer me an option and told me to find my own flight home. I had to pay $1100 on another airline to fly home tomorrow. I will NEVER use Lufthansa again"
Pros: "for the first time ever, my kid ate the airplane food, and it was because it was good. the service was really good and the staff outstanding."
Cons: "Te cabin pressure gave us headache. always happens with the A380 though."
Cons: "Airplane food eatable"
Pros: "Crew, boarding, seat"
Cons: "Paris airport is extremely passenger unfriendly. Better to connect somewhere else"
Pros: "On board crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."
Pros: "Crew and flight and service were fine"
Cons: "Economy seats are cramped"
Pros: "on time no hassle"
Cons: "nothing in particular"
Pros: "Everything was great. Not a single downside. Easy to follow announcements on connection, punctual and nice aircraft."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "The fact that I was re routed that my flight from Paris was late and made me miss my connection."
Pros: "Attentive and friendly crew, good selection of in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "Crew did not come around very frequently with water throughout flight, mostly only during regular beverage service."
Pros: "The staff was communicative and genuine. The food was decent. Even though the flight arrived late I felt ok about it due to the direct communication of details about the situation. I was stuck in the extremely cramped space of seats just in front of the lavatory making the seat in front me 5 inches from my nose when reclined but the staff was sympathetic offering to ask the passenger in front of me to redress their seat more upright and also allowing me to spread out across two seats to compensate."
Cons: "While the staff compensated for the more than standardly cramped seating arrangement, I think the row of seats just in front of the lavatories should be either better designed or designated not usable. I am only 5’3” and 125lbs but still was faced with a mere 5 inches in front of me when the passenger in front of me reclined his seat. I couldn’t even stand in order to exit the row and had to crawl over the seats to my side. This had me thinking how dangerous this row could be in case of an emergency. Please consider designating these seats either not to be used or optional for passengers."
Pros: "Clean, polite and cheerful staff, good food conveniently offered, on time, decent in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "great airport and ease of check in and quickness on boarding flight."
Cons: "boarding everyone all at once creates long unnecessary lines when staggered boarding would help"
Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."
Pros: "Great service, comfy plane, smooth ride."
Pros: "I love Lufthansa! Great service, comfortable, warm towels before meals served with real silverware. Amazing!"
Cons: "Service! Comfort!!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice. 3 hour trip took 15 hours."
Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"
Pros: "The food for the morning was a white chocolate cranberry cookie which was delicious"
Cons: "Our plane was 30 mins late and the terminal was right next to security so we couldn’t hear them when they spoke the English or French on the PA system about us being delayed. We just barely made our connecting flight and our next flight was way better in service. Our luggage didn’t make the connection and hoping that all our precious cargo from our anniversary trip made it. The flight attendant told us we had enough time to make it to our next flight but I honestly ran from one point of the airport to the other. The staff said it wasn’t that far and no checkpoints to go through - this information was false."
Cons: "The boarding area was cramped."
Pros: "Crew attention"
Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"
Pros: "Flight went well."
Cons: "Frankfurt airport is large and complex. Takes some effort to negotiate from one flight to another."
Pros: "I was sleep the whole time"
Cons: "It was okay"
Pros: "Crew were all super polite and friendly"
Pros: "The water and small coffee cake was nice to have on this connecting flight."
Cons: "First, I had issues with checking into my flight online, which lead to me having to print my boarding pass at the airport. Since I had a separate flight with Eurowings that sent me from Munich to Paris, which was not connected with this flight, I came in directly into the airport and no where near a Kiosk to check in or print out my ticket/boarding pass. I explained to numerous employees my situation and they casually exclaimed I should be able to make it in. Once I got into the airport I could barely get through security since I did not have my boarding pass. I kept explaining I don't have a boarding pass because I could not check into my flight to obtain it. Then when they finally let me through with only 10 minutes to spare before my flight's gate would close, I finally reached the boarding desk only to be told I had to wait because out of the two men who were scanning boarding passes, they were too busy to help me. I then had to explain three times that I had already paid for and booked my flight, however, I could not check in online and was having an issue with an error that stated I was missing information, even though there was nothing marked in red or anything marked to edit, so each time I tried it denied me. I also tried calling for customer support and did not get a hold of anyone because the lines were too busy. After explaining all of this to the man at boarding, he made me wait an additional 5 minutes before helping me check into the flight and print out my boarding pass. I was treated like a stand-by customer and I did not appreciate it since I paid for this flight and tried to check in 24 hours prior. I was expecting much more from Lufthansa, as my boyfriend recommended this flight company to me, but I was extremely disappointed in so many ways it makes me question whether I want to fly this airline again for future trips abroad."
Pros: "Smooth flight. No delay, no unpleasant surprise."
Pros: "On my going flight MSP to Frankfurt, I had a normal seat and as a tall person, it was miserable. The seats were so tight I had to have my legs in the aisle and constantly stand just to make it. On the return I was given an exit row and it was quite nice."
Cons: "Condor is a reduced price airline so I was not expecting a large amount of entertainment. But only two free movies was a little bit extreme. The music selection was good."
Cons: "The boarding process takes too long as people try to take too many things"
Pros: "The flight was not fully booked."
Cons: "The snack provided was totally insufficient. the check-in staff were stringent about luggage size and weight even when the flight was not full."
Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."
Cons: "Great customer service!"
Pros: "The flight was short and well organized, boarding relatively efficient, snack was just OK, service was nice and crew was very accommodating and seemed happy. Mobile boarding options worked well."
Cons: "Snack could be better."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Old plane. Bad food. Small seats. Obsolete entertainment system. Hate United!"
Pros: "phenomenal transfer from one flight to the next, thank you lufthansa"
Pros: "Geat customer service by flight attendants."
Pros: "Lovely crew."
Cons: "Boarding process was unclear."
Pros: "The leg room was definitely more than on a US flight, which I gravely appreciated."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic -- no rhyme or reason . Pasta dish and chicken dish were both low quality."
Pros: "Boarding and flight was on time"
Cons: "Seats and comfort was heavily compromised in economy class"
Pros: "All the services were great."
Cons: "Everything was perfect."
Pros: "Smooth Ride Stewardesses"
Pros: "Fast on ant off"
Cons: "Not enough hip or leg room which is somewhat usual, but recent flights with United are much better"
Pros: "The flight was delayed due to the need to replace an engine part, but the crew kept us well informed. Despite taking off nearly an hour and half late, we were only about 45 minutes late in arriving. What was so great about this flight was that it was NOT full. I had an entire row to myself so I could stretch out and sleep. If I was in a regular coach seat, I would not have been comfortable for the entire trip. The crew was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "The food is pretty mediocre."
Pros: "Food was terrible"
Cons: "Toilets were not clean"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Comfort mostly"
Pros: "Amazing flight , crew excellent , good food. Definitely I will travel again with Austrian Airlines"
Cons: "Buses to and from the plane. One driver left us in a full bus waiting for 20 minutes. When we arrived in Vienna, there was no bus to pick us up. We had to wait in the plane until one showed up."
Cons: "Nothing. The plane was clean, everything was on time, and everyone was polite and professional."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Huge delay... :("
Pros: "The crew was friendly and particularly one of the girls was always giving her best"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing. Despite booking business class flights 3 months before departure date because we had to attend a very important wedding. Swiss Airlines overbooked the flight but didn’t warn us in advance. This meant my husband was forced to pay over 8 thousand Euros to charter a small private je"
Cons: "So That we could attend the wedding early the next morning in Oldenburg. They then had the audacity to void our return flights. Luckily I spoke with a lovely lady at Lufthansa, explained the situation and she re-instated return flights for an admin fee. Will never ever use Swiss Airlines again."
Pros: "The crews are very polite."
Pros: "Clean, safe short flights"
Cons: "The 30 minute layover was close"
Cons: "Delayed boarding, crew very friendly, polite"
Cons: "very late"
Cons: "lost connection"
Pros: "Fast flight , friendly staff , ok food"
Cons: "I couldn’t push my seat back and because of that I was awake the whole flight (night flight)"
Pros: "Check in at gate easy and boarding on time. Equipment seemed modern and in good condition."
Cons: "Seats seemed smaller and more narrow than usual. Food in economy terrible. Entertainment program available but crew did not offer earphones needed to use programs."
Cons: "Boarding process was not easy to hear and it was unclear where the line for our gate ended and the line for the gate right next to ours began"
Pros: "I liked the crew on the flight."
Cons: "I was frustrated with the staff at the desk in the airport, as we boarded 20miutes late and they did not feel it necessary to give any comment on the situation. Everyone was puzzled as to why we were not boarding, or if there was a problem. Even the screens did not show any change."
Pros: "Efficient boarding from bus. Friendly crew. Offered soft drink and coffee as well as choice of 2 snacks. No entertainment as such a short flight. Clean, modern plane."
Cons: "The fact that the luggage wasn’t included in the Austrian flight, nor anywhere was pointed out to that so I had to pay extra for it."
Pros: "Absolutely nothin Airlines was courteous enough to provide hotel which was just abt ok"
Cons: "Reschedulle of my journey to next day, everything tat followed"
Cons: "I wanted to buy an checked-in luggage, but Austrian site did not worked properly, repeatedly gave an error message. I ended up buying it at the counter desk, in the airport, at a much higher price."
Pros: "Nice flight freindly staff"
Cons: "Not comfertable chairs"
Pros: "You guys have. Very professional crew !!"
Cons: "The customer service In Europe wasn’t helping out at all"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Nothing! I ended up losing my plane ticket because of Austrian Airlines lack of empathy with me."
Cons: "First I lost my United Airlines flight because of security reasons. I checked in Guatemala but I was delayed at the Airport's security too long, it was beyond my control. Consequently I got to the boarding gate right when they were closing. Consequently I lost all my connections from then on. The United Airlines was very empathizing with me and my situation and they issued me other boarding passes at no cost. United Airlines suggested me to tell the Austrian Airlines about what happened and they were sure the Austrian Airlines would understand but they were wrong; no understanding on behalf of the Austrian Airlines."
Cons: "When our plane arrived late, many on board had missed connections. We received no help/guidance at gate, other than to be told to go up one floor. One floor up we had to go thru security to reach customer service. 100 people lined up for customer service from 3 Austrian airline reps. After 2 hours of standing, there were still 27 people ahead of me. The woman behind me gave me the local phone number for Austrian airlines and I was able to get on a flight to US leaving in 30 minutes. I managed to make it, and would not have had I waited another hour in line. Why no surge of staff to help? All 3 help numbers on my Lufthansa e-mail receipt could not help. Horrible experience."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Pros: "Flight Attendants super friendly as well as ground staff in Salzburg."
Cons: "Seats a little tight."
Pros: "The plane was comfortable and clean. Internet was offered"
Cons: "The Internet didn't work. Although boarding was good the person making the announcements needs to know she should speak up."
Cons: "Rudest flight attendants I've ever witnessed. No food or drink for six hours. Bad entertainment selection."
Pros: "First time traveling with 10-month old son. Satisfaction on my side! Staff was friendly and willingful."
Cons: "Long transit more than 12H without free accommodation nor meals"
Cons: "We left from Vienna , two hours late. This kind of problem supposed to be fix it , before.i like to fly with Austrian Airlines, isn't the first time, but now for me , to so long was a big problem"
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "All was great"
Cons: "except we could not do an online check-in"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable."
Cons: "We were advised to arrive at the gate 45 minutes before departure. We waited an hour and a half more until we boarded. The plane was late on arrival but there were no announcements. No one knew what was going on or when we would board. There was no food served whatsoever. Just beverages. There was no entertainment."
Pros: "got to my destination on time."
Cons: "uncomfortable chairs. zero entertainment for a non EU flight (over 3 hours), missed the meal, nothing was offered...."
Pros: "Most of the crew were nice. Efficient."
Cons: "Ridiculously small seats and legroom."
Cons: "very tight connection in VIE after a small late departure from LHR but we make the connection."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Boarding was very confusing, gate was changed at the last minute without the passengers being warned"
Pros: "Austrian airlines did not have enough passingers and they transfer my father who is very sick and old to turkish airline."
Cons: "Unprofessional very, very!"
Pros: "The female attendants were nice."
Cons: "The male attendants, who were on my side, were not very attentive. I had a small child with me and they didn't seem to realize the challenges associated with what I was doing. Also, my child's screen would not work most of the time, even though I told the attendants."
Pros: "Catering and service was superb. While linen. Course by course on China, no tray service. The food was exquisite. The wine was acceptable, mid range, with very generous pours in Riedel glassware and always the offer made of would I like anything more? The seperate coffee menu has to be experienced to be believed, basically, it's an authentic Vienna see cafe experience at 30,000 ft."
Cons: "Entertainment selection was fiddly and the offerings meagre compared to the vast libraries found on other carriers, but it was sufficient. More a quibble than a gripe from me. The noise cancelling headsets were good quality noise cancelling, and comfortable. I can't wear some other airlines headsets at all and use my ear pods with an airline adapter jack."
Pros: "Most things were OK"
Cons: "Except a crying baby near me, during first half of the flight"
Cons: "Boarding process was incredibly slow, which delayed our flight."
Pros: "Fast and short flight between Vienna and Warsaw. Not much good or bad."
Cons: "Shuttle bus from the terminal took awhile to leave to the plane. No air conditioning to the shuttle. Very hot. Was uncomfortable."
Pros: "the flight seat was comfortable. It was the most comfortable economy class seat."
Pros: "Great service except Vienna airport is too chaotic and baggage wrapping cost 12 euros per piece."
Cons: "Seats in economy class were crammed with next to no leg room"
